Joseph Zbukvic
All Skill Levels

Fallbrook Art Center is thrilled to welcome back internationally renowned watercolorist Joseph Zbukvic.   Fallbrook is one of just a few stops on his 2017 U.S. workshop tour;  his workshop at the Fallbrook School of the Arts sold out in just 24 hours – a testament to his popularity as an instructor and painter. 

Join us for this very special afternoon where you will watch Joseph paint in a way that seems like magic and hear him talk about his work and travels while enjoying light refreshments.  The finished painting will be auctioned off at the end of the demo with proceeds benefiting the nonprofit Fallbrook School of the Arts.

Joseph lives in Australia and is a wonderful and popular tutor in America and abroad. He explains and demystifies the wonderful medium of watercolor in simple easy to understand terms.   His thirty year career has allowed him to obtain a deep insight into many forms of art and all its aspects i.e. drawing composition tonal values and many techniques which are not so obvious.  To learn more about Joseph, visit his website:

About the Instructor

Joseph Zbukvic


Joseph is a highly skilled artist who has the ability to create a magical atmosphere and mood in his paintings. He is a strong believer in the benefits of painting on location. Joseph Zbukvic’s easy manner and sense of humor disguise a wonderful teacher. “I’ve learned many things from my students by simply observing what they see as mistakes. In reality, there is no such thing as a mistake in watercolor – I call them gifts from heaven because the very unpredictability of what the medium will do is its greatest strength” Joseph began his painting career in 1978 and quickly became one of Australia’s finest artists. Born in Zagreb, Croatia, Joseph immigrated to Australia when he was eighteen and has since won over 200 international awards with over 40 solo exhibitions in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, London and San Antonio. Joseph is a member of the Victorian Watercolor Society and was its vice president from 1991 to 1994. He is a long-serving member of the Twenty Melbourne Artists’ Society and Australian Watercolor Institute. Joseph also teaches at Charles Sturt University and the Mitchell School of Arts. “My interest in painting began at a very early age. I grew up on a small farm in Europe where most of the work was done manually and in harmony with nature. I still find the landscape produced by this fine balance, the favorite subject for my paintings”. “I always say, go with the flow. If you listen to your watercolor as you paint, it will actually tell you where it wants to go. And if you learn to live in the lifetime of any given watercolor while it’s wet, you can travel an amazing journey and be quite relaxed about it, rather than hurrying in your own time. After all, a butterfly lives only for a day; that is it’s lifetime. A watercolour can be wet for mere minutes and that is it’s lifetime.”
